Presuming they know left from right...
Ok picture this person lays under bike, reaches up with Allen wrench and fits it into bung at the 6 o'clock orientation and pushes lefty loosey!
He's tightening!
If it's just the hand I doubt it'd strip.
Add in some leverage a la torque wrench and bingo!
Stripped.....
Tha hand held Allen can't mess up

Always used regular old fashioned flat wrench on cars for same reason. Some people pull out torque wrench for 10 ft lb though.

I use a ratchet, but I hold it at the socket, not the handle.

Snug not torqued. Easy peasy.

Man aint kidding on the clockwise thing. I just wrapped up 5 years of instruction at a local college in the automotive field. When students read instructions about say torque to yeild bolts and it says clockwise and then X more degrees they are lost.
